RIM has listed the apps they plan on giving away in the coming weeks as a thank you gesture for their prolonged outage. The list included the sweet Shazam Encore premium version which usually costs $4.99 in App World. RIM did not give us a specific date but Terry pointed out that Shazam posted a tweet that it would be available in Early November. They confirmed that on their blog along with the following message:
A heads up for all BlackBerry Shazamers! In early November you’ll be able to download Shazam Encore – our premium App worth $4.99 for FREE from BlackBerry App World.
No Limits. Unlimited tagging with Encore means you can Shazam as often as you like to buy music, get lyrics, watch videos and more…
And it’s all thanks to BlackBerry! To show their appreciation for your loyalty and support during last week’s service interruption – BlackBerry Subscribers will get a choice pick of premium apps free of charge – find out more here*! Nice one BlackBerry! We’ll keep you posted here on our Blog and on Facebook and Twitter when Shazam Encore is free to download from BlackBerry App World.
* Please note that the availability of this offer will depend on the type of device, operating system version, access to BlackBerry App World and local conditions and/or restrictions.
